Here's another Sesame Street Newsflash: the street will be gaining another new Muppet character in the form of a cute little autistic girl named Julia. http://www.today.com/parents/sesame-street-introduces-first-character-autism-meet-julia-t51491 Based on the information presented in the article, I really can't tell if she's going to be a part of the series proper, or if she's been created for another one of those Little Children, Big Challenges resource specials/videos. But this is really interesting, and something of a coincidence too: I know a girl from deviantART who created a SST Muppet FC (OC) with autism and when she visited the set, talked to them about incorporating her into the show so they'd have a representation of autistic kids, but they told her they couldn't do that for legal/copyright reasons. . . . which in an of itself reminds me of a friend of mine who, back in the 80s/90s, submitted a suggestion to Fred Wolf Films about incorporating a female turtle on TMNT named Mona Lisa, but they told her they didn't accept unsolicited material . . . then shortly afterwards, came Mona Lisa, the mutant lizard lady. But, I digress. This should be interesting; I think it's nice that SST is trying to not only add another female Muppet to the roster, but one with a disability - very inclusive.
